Welcome to 8th Grade!
Step into the 8th grade classroom and you will discover excitement, energy, and a love for Christ. My mission is to love each student as Christ would have me do and to teach with passion. My goal is to develop young adults who are God centered, patriotic, and servant minded.

This tradition is a fun and exciting way to end the year and bring their time together at St. Gregory’s to a close.
